Color Pencil Beetle Drawing

Learn Color Pencil Beetle Drawing!

This quirky Color Pencil Beetle Drawing workshop focuses on the beautiful and metallic-looking Green Jewel Bug (Chrysocoris patricius). Nature drawing helps you to connect more deeply with the natural world via direct observation. The simple act of starting a drawing slows you down long enough to notice details about a subject that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Human beings are natural explorers. We take joy in understanding the world around us & recognize the value of attaining knowledge & skills through experience & practice. 

This Color Pencil Beetle Drawing workshop will teach you a variety of color pencil techniques that are not only helpful for starting a nature drawing, but for continuing your nature drawing practice for years to come.

Supplies You Need for Color Pencil Beetle Drawing

Nature Drawing is probably one of the most affordable hobbies out there. You don’t need much to get started! However, color pencils can become a little costly, especially if you’re investing in a full professional grade set. You don’t need to get the high end materials to get started, just keep an eye open for a brand that has a high pigment-to-wax ratio. You want more pigment and less wax in your pencils. 

These are the supplies that you need in order to participate in this Color Pencil Beetle Drawing workshop. Please note that some of the art supply links are Amazon Associate links. You can help support Hike And Draw by using these links to purchase supplies.

  • Basic set of GOOD color pencils (I prefer Prismacolor or Caran D’ache)
  • Tinted drawing paper, either off white or gray with a smooth surface ( I like Strathmore).
  • Regular pencil for the initial sketch
  • Kneadable eraser for correcting mistakes
  • Blending tools (tortillons, blending stumps, or cotton swab)
  • Optional: Acrylic matte fixative spray to protect the finished artwork
